New Ferry Service

New Ferry Service Connects Mainland Greece with Turkey


Ferry services between Smyrna’s (Izmir) Cesme district and the Lavrio port, near Athens began Sunday with a special ceremony at the Turkish Port.

It is the first time that the Turkish and Greek mainlands will be connected by ferry, something that is expected to boost regional tourism.

The journey aboard the “Kaunas” ferry takes about 7 hours. The ship departs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from Lavrio, and from Cesme on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Prices for a one way ticket start at 55 euros.

Bureaucratic obstacles had delayed the start of the service which was initially scheduled for June 2nd.



“The line will not only boost the region’s economy but it will also provide significant convenience for expatriates as well as tourists,” Ipek furthermore added.

The Cesme to Lavrio sea route was chosen as it is the closest distance between the Turkish and Greek mainlands.

Re: New Ferry Service

Sounds brilliant. I would certainly have used it when I lived in Izmir. Maybe sometime soon.....

Re: New Ferry Service

I had it booked for early June, only to get a message to say that it had been delayed opening until 30th June - and then at considerably higher price.

I was taking my motorhome and planning the quick jaunt across from Lavrion to Patras and then a further ferry to Venice... Kalkan to Venice in three days and only about 7.5 hours of driving seemed excellent... But the cost with a Motohome was more than £300 one-way and then £350 to Venice.

Have deferred the trip and will see if prices fall in Sept (I hope). I do like the idea of not having to drive North to Erdine and then right across Greece to t=get the Italian Ferry.

Postponement to Cesme-Athens ferry again

Citizens suffered a second shock after the cancellation of the Çeşme-Athens trip. The company canceled the trip, allegedly does not refund the reservation money

BIRGUN.NET August 2.



The ferry service between Cesme and Athens was extended for the second time and the citizens who made a reservation claimed that their money was not returned and they could not reach the company. It was alleged that the firm closed its offices.


The ferry service, which reduced the distance between Çeşme and Athens to Lavrion to 7 hours, was announced to be extended again for technical reasons until July 30.

According to the statement released yesterday, the start of the ferry service was postponed to Wednesday, August 7.

Aegean Sea Ways (Aegean Sea Ways) company, which makes the trip, announced on its website that the trips were interrupted for technical reasons and said: “Your ticket prices will be returned to the cards you have paid”.

However, citizens who make reservations, claimed that their money was not returned and could not reach the company. Citizens who could not reach the company became uneasy.


Izmir's Cesme district and the Greek capital of Athens, Lavrion Port, which began on June 30, and soon after "technical problems" until 30 July was announced due to a break.

Re: New Ferry Service

Is this about a ferry or flights?
